Church’s #12 Jersey to Be Retired by UL Basketball

ragincajuns.com

On Saturday, September 25th, at halftime of Louisiana’s regular-season finale against Louisiana-Monroe, the Ragin’ Cajuns will retire only their fourth jersey in team history,

Dean Church, a two-time NAIA All-American, will have his #12 jersey retired, joining all-time greats Bo Lamar, Marvin Winkler and Andrew Toney.

Church, who played from 1961-65, was the first UL basketball player ever to be named All-American after the 1963-64 season.  Church still ranks 12th on the all-time Cajuns’ scoring list.

Current Ragin’ Cajuns basketball coach Bob Marlin requested the jersey retirement, which was found to meet the criteria the University has set up for the retiring of jerseys.  The approval came from Athletics Director Scott Farmer and was confirmed by University President Dr. E. Joseph Savoie.

The retirement ceremony will be held at halftime.  The four current Cajuns’ seniors, Josh Brown, Darshawn McClellan, David Perez and Scottie Farrington will be honored prior to the game.
